    Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Canned Cat Food:

    I feed one can to my Cleo every morning. I then feed 1 chicken thigh in the evening. This I have found is the best combo to maximize protein but to not over hydrate. Another way to keep cost reasonable is to order enough to get free shipping and to do the auto order method. This is in my opinion the best can cat food out there. Favorite flavors my cat likes is rabbit and venison. My Grandma also told me "you get what you pay for". You may pay a little more but what this food has done for my rescue kitty is amazing!

          Best Uses

            Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Canned Cat Food:

            Instinct canned food - both the Limited Ingredient diet and regular diet - made my cat sick. I don't understand why there are vegetables in cat food. I picked out the green peas, but my cat still had a reaction. After a few days of eating the canned food, I noticed he was lethargic and drooling. I found bits of food on the floor and on his cat tree. He was also kicking a lot of litter out of his box - he doesn't do that normally. I stopped buying canned food that contains any form of carbohydrate. Now I buy Merrick Limited Ingredient and Whole Paws canned food. Whole Paws is like the healthy version of Fancy Feast Classic. It contains a small amount of careggenan, but at least it doesn't have fruits, vegetables, or artificial flavors. He only likes the chicken/whitefish and chicken/beef flavors. He's doing well so far. All his symptoms cleared up. He's back to his normal self, running around and playing. It's appalling that pet food companies are misleading people. They promote unnatural, unscientific diets.
